If you want top notch Italian food and you're in the Ashford area, look no further. This is not a bustling town centre restaurant and is within a small hotel.....but the food is excellent. The wine is at normal UK restaurant prices but the Sicillian red is very good.

I have eaten the pizzas here several times and they really are AWESOME ! In fact I have recommended the pizzas to atleast 20 or maybe more people and all have commented on how great they are.

Used the restaurant whist staying at the adjoining hotel. Nothing was too much trouble. We requested that we eat outside (It was a really hot night) and they accommodated us no problem. Waitress was really polite and friendly (and also worked on the bar). Pizza was one of the best i have had for a long time.

This place was like the hills have eyes. We rang and booked three days in advance. We arrived at the time of our booking (7pm) and followed the signs to the "restaurant entrance". We then had to walk through a dark, unlit, dull hallway and bar area to get to an empty restaurant. After loitering for a while we were... More

Everything about this restaurant is superb, the service the food, nothing was too much trouble. I won this on ASHFORD radio but took friends along who agreed with me that everything was superb and we can't wait to go again.
